EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Billings native Dylan Donahue was among the New York Jets’ final roster cuts before Saturday’s 53-man active-roster deadline.

The Jets waived Donahue, who is likely facing a long suspension from the league after pleading guilty to two DWIs in the off-season.

Donahue, who played at Billings West High School, was drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Jets, but missed most of his rookie season due to an elbow injury suffered in early October of last year. The linebacker recorded five tackles and added his first career sack this preseason.

Players with less than four years of service go on waivers until noon EDT Sunday. If they are not claimed, they become unrestricted free agents.
